CARBOTAG chemically-tagged traceable technology
CARBOTAG chemically-tagged traceable technology is a patented process to add unique chemical markers—called taggants—to any CARBO proppant during manufacturing. The taggants are naturally occurring chemical markers. Since they are nonradioactive, they do not present any unique health hazards, nor any additional handling requirements. The taggants are added in trace concentrations during
the manufacturing process and do not alter the physical properties or performance of the proppant. The taggant can be easily identified with routine chemical analyses of a flowback sample, including x-ray fluorescence (XRF) and inductively coupled plasma (ICP) analysis.
